MicroSoft's Project Natal

I have to admit, this is pretty cooooool. Too bad you need a stinkin' X-Box for it.

Also, I don't know what to make of the kid with an actual skateboard choosing to skate on his TV instead. :doh:

That really has my attention... If this comes out and is as good as it looks, I'll sell my missus for it.

I really like the look of what I'd call a true beat'em up... No button combos, just smash the shizzle out of your opponent... Even if that appears to be an arrogant balding old man...

1. Nintendo Wii is the innovation, Project Nasal is the imitation...Wii FTW.

2. Project Nasal, Project X, or Project Repair...still the same DefeXBox 360 and just another accessory to waste on a non-working heap of wires and chips.

I'd say that true, I never officially declared myself a non-MS fan, I mean I'll still buy some MS products but it has to strictly depend on which product it is.

Lets say that a bad Internet Explorer 6, IE7, downgraded Sound Recorder from XP to Vista (still prefer Vista and won't touch XP, but I will admit truth to this), bad customer phone "service", a "safety" power cord replacement to the original for XBox 1 which was bad, and 2 defective XBox 360's was enough to make me steer clear of many MS products, but especially the 360.


Also, the 360 is the only current game console with tray-load disc drives instead of newer/better slot-load disc drives, along with previous generation style memory cards instead of universal SD Cards or Memory Sticks, guess that's why that system was rushed for the 2005 Holiday season besides simply losing the license to nVidia's graphics on XBox series.

Make it a stand alone system that can run both xbox & PS games and i'm in. Wii just all around sucks, biggest waste of money imo.

Bit off topic, but honestly answer me this. Why re hash old games that sucked? "Punch out"? Now seriously Nintendo, do you have to follow the same line as Hollywood with all these poopy remakes of poopy originals? Regarding the good games like Super Mario Kart. GIVE ME THE SAME GAME as before, no graphics over haul, voices and what not... It's fine the way it is without all the enhancements!

"OMG! that game looks so cool! CUTSCENES! pretty women, so what if the game play blows and the story is non existent." None of this new stuff will ever have any nostalgic value for me. :rant:


Anyway, neat idea. A bit beyond wii since you still require a controller. But what do you wanna bet it will cost an arm and a leg, and maybe a left testicle? Not to mention the price of the games.

I have to say, Natal does look truly awesome. IMHO it is so much better than Wii implementation of motion control, which is quite restrictive, totally removing the user from a control peripheral is a really neat idea and might tip me over to edge so I can get my hands on a 360.

I am surprised that MS don't release an updated version of the 360 with some of the faults ironed out, like Sony did with the Playstation/PSOne Playstation2/PS2 etc.

And as far as the Wii goes.....ONE TRICK PONY. It is truly stuck in that it is no-longer a gamer's console, it is now a lifestyle accessory and all the games the developers make for it are pretty much those gawd awful lifestyle games like Beach Bum Fun Academy etc. It's technical about as powerful as a Gamecube, so current Gen game devs don't touch it since it just can't run modern style games like GTIV or Prototype.
